Alexander Knocks off Attica

post by Chad Flint in Attica, alexander, Girl's Soccer, sports

Alexander played at Attica Wednesday night and came away with a strong 7-0 victory.  Alexander took a bit to get going but once they took control of the game they didn't slow down.

In the 13th minute Senior Defender Jamie Neth took a pass from fellow Senior Defender Leah Johnson and sent a high shot over the keepers head for the 1-0 lead.  5 minutes later Senior Forward Anna Dominick headed a corner kick from Junior Defender Savannah Vanson to make it 2-0.  Junior Forward Megan Schmieder made it 3-0 in the 27th minute (assists to Junior midfielders Autumn Atkinson and Kylie Bank).  3 minutes later Freshman Forward Abby Shilvock made it 4-0 (assists to Dominck and Bank).  A mere 2 minutes later Neth had her 2nd of the game (unassisted) to make the halftime score 5-0.

In the 2nd half Alexander continued to control play but wasn't getting the ball to the front of the net until Junior Midfielder Claire Hartl won a 50/50 ball and scored in the 31st minute (unassisted).  With 90 seconds left in the game Dominick had her 2nd (assisted by Atkinson) making the final 7-0.

Junior Goalkeeper Hannah Wilson made 3 saves for her 2nd shutout of the season with a strong help from her defense of Neth, Johnson, VanSon, Freshman Gabby Kwaitek, Junior Taylor Antinore, and Junior Summer Bliss.

Alexander moves to 2-0 on the season and is off until they face Holley at home next Tuesday.

Attica's Derek Wolfley coming home

post by Brian Hillabush in Attica, basketball, sports

Former Attica standout Derek Wolfley received a Division I basketball scholarship to Iona wolfley.jpgCollege last season, and played in 25 games during his freshman season.

But now he's coming home.

The 6-foot-7 forward has decided to take his college basketball career to the University at Buffalo, where he expects to see more playing time next season.

Attica's all-time leading scorer with 1,474 points and 932 rebounds averaged 7.5 minutes per game for the Gaels, while scoring 1 point and 0.9 rebounds per contest.

He will be playing as a walk-on next year but will have an opportunity for a basketball scholarship because six seniors will graduate from next year's UB squad.

post by Howard Owens in Attica, batavia, accident, elba

One driver complained of back pain and was transported to UMMC following a two-vehicle accident in Elba on Saturday afternoon.

A 2006 Chevy sedan reportedly driven by Kelly M. Pope, 38, of Attica, was traveling eastbound on Batavia-Elba Townline Road at about 3:50 p.m. and apparently failed to yield the right-of-way to Robert G. Turner, 76, of Elba, who was driving a 2008 Nissan SUV.

Pope reportedly stopped at the intersection of Batavia-Elba and Bank Street Road, and then attempted to proceed through the intersection, but did not see Turner's vehicle.

After the collision, Turner's vehicle reportedly traveled into the yard at 7626 Bank Street Road, coming to rest in a group of shrubs.

Earthquake reported in Attica

post by Howard Owens in Attica, earthquake

In California, any temblor less than 4.5 on the Richter Scale isn't even worth a little chit-chat by the water cooler, but in New York, anytime the earth shakes, people notice.

A reader sent in this message:

Workers at the Attica Prison have reported feeling an earth tremor that shook the building and has also been felt in other areas of attica. Has this been felt in other places as well or just Attica?

The USGS Web site, which notes any tremor of 1.0 or greater, does not list any earth movement in Western New York.

UPDATE: We just received this e-mail:

My mom just called me and told me there was a very large boom at her house  outside of attica and it shook her house pretty good and my aunt who lives in  the town of attica also heard it and it shook her house also.  Do you know  what it was???????

UPDATE II: I just called the Attica Police Department. They've receive reports, too. The boom was about an hour ago. "We have not been able to confirm what it was," a dispatcher said.

UPDATE III:  USGS now confirms an Earthquake:

Magnitude: 2.9
Date-Time: 11:07:52
Location: 42.828°N, 78.248°W
Depth: 3.1 miles

Three miles from Attica, five miles from Alexander.
